Camera and lens for sale: Details

I posted on Twitter yesterday, but here are the deets too long to post to Twitter:

70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM. It’s in like new condition (mint), as I only used it two times (that I can remember, anyway). I have the original box, manuals, cases, tripod mount, etc. I also have a multi-coated, low-profile, high quality UV filter that I’ll throw in with it. I’d like to get $1300 for it. It sells for around $1600 brand new, and $1400 to $1450 for similarly conditioned used lenses on ebay.

I also have the 40D. I’d guess that it has fewer than 500 shutter actuations on it (I can get the exact number off the camera tonight). It is also in like new condition and came bundled with a Canon 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM lens (not L series). This bundle sells for around $1050 new (which is about what I paid for mine) and $899 for refurbs. I can part with mine for $850.

I’d sell both the big lens and the camera kit for $2000.

I’m just passing along this info. I’m not vouching for the guy or his gear. I’m told you can of course meet him and see the gear prior to purchase if you are local DC metro. I guess contact me via Twitter (
